Overview

Besides shopping at the Crossings in Tannersville and trying new restaurants, my favorite activity is skiing! There are plenty of ski areas in the Pocono Mountains. My favorite is Camelback in Tannersville (www.skicamelback.com) that has a great view from the top of the mountain. The conditions are always good and there are plenty of trails to choose from.

BEER - FOOD - FUN!!! That's what Barley Creek Brewing Company will offer you. The brewery is located on the corner of Sullivan Trail and Camelback Road between Camelback Ski Area and the Crossings retail outlet center.
